Serenade

Serenade   20X24 Acrylic on Canvas  $480

This canvas is many layers of splashes of transparent acrylic color.  Splashes, dots and rubbing alcohol. Between the layers I put a coat of medium so that I get a true view of the final result.

It is my wish that my paintings give the viewer a feel of joy in nature and life.

Blessings for a great day.

Its all a new venture.  One which I will continue into the year.

Blessings for a great day.

Sunlight

Sunlight  Encaustic on Cradle Panel 10X8  $120

With this piece I wanted to try using mat board that was glued onto the cradle board so that I would start with a white background.  I also wanted to start with watercolor image on the mat board prior to putting my first layer of wax on the board.  From there I added layers of india ink, wax, scratching, layers of cretacolor water soluble oil pens , lines and a few beads.

I think you can call this a true mixed media piece.

Blessings for a great day.

New Year

New Year 2016 Encaustic on Cradle Board 10X8  $120

Its a new year and I am playing.The mystique of the flowing melted wax is drawing me in. Being in Canada with most supplies coming from the US it seems an expensive venture at this point in time so I am working small and I search for various ways that this medium works.

There is no similarity to any of the other forms of art making that I have encountered and it is opening the door to so many possibilities.  I am looking forward to this venture and will continue to work in the other areas as well.

Isn't life interesting.

Blessings for a great day and an adventurous New Year.

Fall Light

Fall Light 24x24x1 1/2 Acrylic on Gallery Wrapped canvas SOLD

This painting is a commission I received just prior to Christmas.  I painted a smaller version of this 3 years ago.  My style has changed quite a bit since then so it was a challenge.  I am always up for a challenge and it was a good way to end the year.  Lots of splashes and drops of paint.  Layers and layers.

Blessings for a great New Year.

Echo of Colors


Echo of Colors 12x12x 1 1/2 Acrylic on Canvas SOLD

This is an acrylic painting with many splashes of color. The vibrancy is in the many layers of transparent paint and medium.  I haven't painted in this manner for some time so it has been an interesting exercise.

Blessings for a great day.
